He ran untouched this season – sizzling to world record runs twice, but the coach of Kenya’s world 800m record-holder David Rudisha believes there is still a lot of work to do.

Colm O’Connell, coached Rudisha to eye-popping record runs this term but warned that his pupil will only consider himself one of the greatest athletes of all time when he wins world and Olympics titles.

“Rudisha should realise there is much work to be done and what he has achieved this year is a phase in his career,” O’Connell said.

“The next two years are very important since we have the World Championships and the Olympics coming up and he can only consider himself a great if he adds his name to these categories,” he added.

Rudisha first broke the world record in Berlin on August 22 with a time of 1 minute 41.09 seconds before bettering that mark with 1:41.01 in Rieti, Italy, a week later.
